This is the USA only version (by request) I am hosting an international one you can join as well.
Update 9/27/15: These PLs do not have to have a lot of decorating to keep shipping costs down, but feel free to do as much as you like. Keep simple, thin (less than 1/4 inch per US Postal) and light. I've mailed a PL in the US using 1 regular stamp. For example, for one of my pockets I'll include a picture of my two dogs. Maybe add a sticker or write their names, but that's it. Thin, light, and still a fact about me.
I think this a unique swap to get to know others and maybe expand your pocket letter pal list. I may do more swaps like this depending on the feedback, which is always appreciated. So for this pocket letter swap you will be creating and telling 9 facts about yourself. Ok here's the details:
•Each pocket must be individually designed around a fact about you. So first I would sit down with a pen & paper and write a list of things about you. Some examples are: your favorite color, favorite hobby, favorite animal or pet, did you recently get married or have a baby, what state/country do you live in, do you live by anything interesting, your favorite drink, when is your birthday, favorite holiday, favorite season, favorite food, etc. Next you can break down each fact with ideas to create it. For example use any stickers of embellishments in your favorite color on one pocket, decorate a Starbucks drink sleeve for your favorite drink, cut a picture from a magazine or draw your favorite food, etc.
•Only the front of each pocket must be decorated and on the back you will write the fact about you that corresponds with the card front. For example: you would write "My favorite color is ___________." on the back of the card you decorated with your favorite color. All 9 pockets have to have a different fact.
•You must include at least a short note with the swap name & your username. You do not have to write a letter as the pockets are like your letter. However feel free to write one and as much as you like (include your address if you want to continue swapping/writing with your partner)
•No goodies are required for this swap, but it's always thoughtful ;)
•You will get TWO partners and this is a USA ONLY swap. These PLs should be relatively light and not costly. (Tip: you can make two of the exact same pocket letters about you to send as they will be going to two different places; so don't feel stressed about creating 18 different facts about you)
I will be checking profiles. Newbies are welcome with a filled out profile as this is a simple swap. However, no recent or unexplained 1s or 3s. Please let your partner know before rating 1 or 3 as a courtesy. All profiles must be filled out and I reserve the right to ban anyone from the swap that I do not feel is a good match.
Feel free to msg me or comment with any questions. Check out my profile for additional creative pocket letter swaps I may be hosting. Be really creative with this swap and most of all have fun. Happy Swapping! :)
